I read prior posting...6 speed w/ 3.63.
I wonder how this would be in my car with a 5 speed/ 4.30's.

225/181 at wheels

2330lbs with me and a 1/2 tank

Direzza dz102 @ 20psi

6spd with 3.636 (welded diff)
I feels these gears are perfect. I go through the traps top of 4th.

I had major wheel hop and traction issues even with solid diff mounts and solid mount connect diff to the 6 point brace. I pretty much launched at 3000 rpm at like 30% throttle and feathered it in to try and minimize the hop

i tried that with my old turbo car, and it wasn't a great success for me, but that day wasn't to good in general.

Wow man. At that speed I'd be in 5th. Maybe I should swap 3.90's.

5 speed and 3.9 felt dog slow to me. No getup and go at lower RPM. 6 speed+3.9 was much better. I'm also 1.6 lowlife.

Yeah 1.6 isn't gonna move those gears, before I did the k swap I was 3.636 and a 5spd with I tired stock 1.6. It was a joke.

the solid grunt from this 2.4 blows my mind. It's only gonna go faster.

Nice job Josh, lots more potential left as you keep sorting it out. Can't wait to see it keep getting dialed in!
